I can imagine that all that is quite alot work (where
writing the actual plugin is the least!! work of all).
I wrote a mozilla plugin a few years ago and stumbled
over alot issues .. the final issue which kept me away
was that the conclusion was FF will not have a stable
plugin mechanism for years.

Best is to use a symbol enabled firefox build and
submit the coredumps and backtraces when something
crashes or looks weird.
